1845-D high end AU $5 gold half eagle, RARE DAHLONEGA half eagle, very few graded, nice coin, see photos and feel free to ask any questions. this is a high end AU piece in our humble opinions, a great looking piece with brilliant semi-prooflike luster and perfect light honey gold color, just as you'd expect from this mint on a near uncirculated coin. this coin came from an estate sale several years back. it is very strongly struck and looks like it barely circulated. it was sent in for grading and came back AU cleaned but it doesn't show any hairlines or any other signs of a cleaning so we think the graders were confused by the prooflike luster, as if they took it as polish. we've looked at it closely and the surfaces don't show signs of polish either. it faces up as nice as some of the lower end BU coins in our extensive collection. we decided to break it out of the holder to send for a second 'opinion' but never got back to it. difference of opinion or not, the opinion that matters is yours so we back our experienced opinion with a return privilege so you don't worry about getting burnt- we are honest people and will give an immediate refund if you don't agree or don't like it for any reason. we've added numerous shots to give you every angle and catch every mark so you can see for yourself. it might not be one of the rare dates from the Dahlonega mint but definitely worthy of a type set or set of high grade half eagles. PCGS has graded only 277 pieces in all grades combined and NGC has graded only 289. you can bet a lot of those were broken out of their slabs and sent in for a higher grade so the true number is even less. there are probably only a few hundred pieces of this date left in existence. the top three online price guides put the value of an AU50 at an average of $3,600 and an AU58 at an average of $6,300. compare these numbers to those for a 1916-D dime, 1893-S Morgan dollar or Gem BU red 1909-S VDB cent for sheer rarity and value and you'll see why I am so enthusiastic about rare date half eagles and why I think they are very much undervalued compared to traditional US coin series.
